This paper investigates the defects of a large embedded software development project over a period of about two years. It describes how software development and product development are organized in parallel branches. By mapping the defects reported on product development branches to the releases on the main line of software development, the paper shows the impact of the product development strategy on the defect lifecycle in software development.
